Detoxing and It's been a long time!

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

I realize I haven't posted anything since... 2010! Wow, it has been such a long time. I have gained a lot of weight and I am shocked to tell you... I am at risk of developing diabetes. It is time to change things, wanting or not. Blogging can help me get motivated and at least have somewhere to vent off to. So, of to blogging!

I started a detox diet on sunday and it will go on until sunday the 24th. Not because of the fast weight loss, but for the entire mind detoxing you put yourself through.

Why detox your mind?

I don't know why you guys got overweight or even obese. I got there because my heart is on the table. I have a real hard time distinguishing why it is that I am eating and sometimes I overeat a LOT because it makes me feel a tiny bit better. Detoxing will make you go through a few days without your comfort foods. No chocolates, no sugary treats, no pasta, no creamy food. And why exactly does that makes you detox your mind and what exactly is that? Well, you will see and be able to pin point when it is that you crave for something. Not being able to have it, first you will learn that there are other options that will satisfy your needs in a much healthier way (I now eat raisins instead of a box of chocolates) and also, you will have to learn to face and deal with the reasons why you are craving something. "Am I upset? Why am I upset? Would the chocolate help me with my problems? What would help me with my problems then?" Putting my heart out of the table is one of the biggest problems I always face. I am having a hard time learning to do that, and I'm growing as a person by doing so.

Have you guys tried anything like that? Let me know!

    I detox once a week to clean out the system and alert the mind! I make green smoothies with spinach, water, pineapple, apple, banana, mango, etc. I added flaxseed to my green smoothie this morning. I like the way I feel when I'm having a total green smoothie day - very energetic. Now, I also drink green smoothies during the week which cause me to feel full and not each much during meals, I actually have to make myself (and remind myself) to eat because I'm full from smoothies. But I don't feel weighted down. You may get a headache doing it for a week so it's an idea to keep in mind, if you do it once a week, your body becomes used to it so you don't get headaches.
    I agree with what TIME2Bloom said about your body becomes aware of how it reacts to certain foods after a detox.

    I am on a detox supplements which are helping me to control my cravings and eat more good stuff. It has made me aware of how my body reacts to bad food and thrives on good food. For me it's life changing.. Doing her program is giving me so much energy, I feel like my body is doing major healing. She has been a blessing as she knows the right supplements vs. when i was trying to do it all on my own. Now I have a guide I am making so much progress. emoticon
